About 70% of headmasters in Armenia’s 25 cities (600 schools) are
Republican Party (HHK) members.

“Half of them became HHK members in the past ten years. This is heinous
abuse of administrative resources. People had to become affiliated
with the ruling party [HHK] for fear that they might lose their jobs,”
says President of “Asparez” Journalists’ Club Levon Barseghyan.

On the threshold of the May 6 parliamentary elections, five NGOs
dealing with human rights issues have conducted surveys which revealed
disturbing findings.

For example, the relatives of convicts were ordered to ‘collect
signatures’ in order to have their loved ones paroled, says human
right activist Avetik Ishkhanyan.

The only positive thing recorded by the human rights NGOs was the
efficient work of media.
